Lyrics

You can dress for success and speak to impress with savoir faire and high-mindedness
Wear your best suit with your wing tips and cuffs but ten dollar words can’t buy her love

You can quote Shakespeare and wax eloquent but slick turns of phrase they ain’t worth a cent
You finally found the one you dreamed of but ten dollar words can’t buy her love

Ten dollar words are never enough, ten dollar words can’t buy her love
Your ivory tower goes all the way up, but ten dollar words can’t buy her love

You can pontificate til you’re blue in the face, hoping on hope that’ll she’ll see things your way
With a tongue like an angel come down from above but ten dollar words can’t buy her love

Ten dollar words are never enough, ten dollar words can’t buy her love
Your ivory tower goes all the way up, but ten dollar words can’t buy her love

One day a voice inside your head says drop the act, you ain’t well bred
you’re just a cowboy, you’re not a king so throw on your boots and your faded blue jeans

Enter the bar, take off your hat, walk over to her and say sorry for all that
Then turn toward the jukebox and ask her to dance cause all it takes is a quarter to find romance

Ten dollar words are never enough, ten dollar words can’t buy her love
Your ivory tower goes all the way up, but ten dollar words can’t buy her love
